A dark retelling from a character out of Shakespeare’s “Midsummer Night’s Dream,” "Playing Puck" is just that - playing with the character of Robin Goodfellow, known also as Puck, servant fairy to the fairy king Oberon.
Originally written as a bumbling fairy, the Puck we meet in this retelling is intentional in his mistakes. For as Puck creates hostility between the characters of this story, nature itself is damaged or destroyed.
Eventually, of course, Puck must be left to sweep up the pieces of his own existence as well, an existence mandated and controlled by something that is the very essence of evil itself.
